Meltzer: Reason revealed why Vince didn't want Bray to become champion

On the post-HIAC edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer touched upon the reason why Vince McMahon didn't want Bray Wyatt to win the Universal Championship at Hell in a Cell:

"Vince wanted to go in there, with, you know this is like a new season and there was like this idea that he wanted Seth Rollins, Brock Lesnar, Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch as the four champions going into this draft and going into this new season. Those were his picks and Bray Wyatt wasn't."

Fuck thanks Dave. So the people who won were Vince’s picks? No kidding.

It's so simple don't have them face each other.

You could easily have put the Fiend over in a HIAC with anyone as the main event/special attraction and have Seth defend the title against someone else to retain. So avoidable, it was the Fiend's second match since the redebut! Booked very well until last night as well.

Vintage Meltzer strikes again!

He forgot to add that Kofi Kingston, Bayley and Sasha Banks weren't Vince's picks either...

"It's a new season, pal. I know what we can do to really emphasize that. Let's put the four main titles on the only four people that have ever held them."

Bray Wyatt isn't one of his guys because Vince doesn't like charisma or talent. If you have charisma or talent, you can't succeed in WWE. You can't, it's verboten. Absolute fucking shambles. This is why people hate WWE. There's nothing you can do to improve your station, you can get over, you can draw, you can be the hottest character they have on the show and it means NOTHING if the idiot in charge doesn't like the way you look. If I was a wrestler in WWE after last night, I would completely zone out and give ZERO effort from this point forward, because Bray Wyatt did everything you're supposed to do as a wrestler to make it in this business, and Seth Rollins is doing everything wrong, and it just DOESN'T FUCKING MATTER. Hard work doesn't pay off in WWE. Just clock in with no purpose and no passion and con Vince out of as much money as you can to keep you out of AEW, that's the sole point of being a wrestler in WWE.

Dont book the most over guy on the Roster into a spot where he ahs to lose then. And especially dont do it when said lose kills the character dead. AND especially especially dont do it in the absolute most braindead way possible.

Yeah, how does putting the Titles on the status quo, the most played out, boring, over pushed four wrestlers on the roster in anyway play into a new season? Its just the same old shit we've seen for way to long now.

And yeah, its painfully obvious that talent and hard work are entirely meaningless in the WWE. Doesn't matter how hard someone works, doesn't matter how great someone is, if Vince and co. dont pick them to succeed they go nowhere. Look at Bray, again, look at Joe, look at Rusev, look at Miz. Look at anyone in WWE that always gives it their all and always busts their ass. They're all just cannon fodder to the McMahons chosen ones. People think this attitude is just being a downer or whatever, but its genuinely the WWE attitude.

I don’t understand this logic when people say Vince only likes people that lack charisma and mic skills to be his champions.
You mean to tell me Vince the guy who made Bret Hart, hbk, austin, rock, taker, hogan, hhh, cena his top guys does not like people with charisma. I mean he made rock and austin the 2 greatest trash talkers and charisma filled guys in the history of pro wrestling his top guys
You mean the same Vince that made chyna, lita, trish and Debra his top women.
Brook is legit and should be champion
Becky is the most over woman in pro wrestling today.
Charlotte is nepotism
I agree about the fiend getting screwed and that Rollins shouldn’t even be champion.
I just think just because Vince doesn’t favor 2 or 3 of the IWC favorites doesn’t mean he doesn’t care about charisma and mic skills. That’s just ridiculous when you see the kind of people he has pushed over the last 30 years to the top.
